Doctor Choosing A Midwife-led Birth

Welcome and thank you for listening!

For us midwives, every client’s journey is unique. It is an honour to follow along, through the ups and downs, the concerns and anxieties, the tender moments and the triumphs.

One of the women I’ve had the privilege of joining along her journey is Dr Caroline van der Werff – a doctor from Port Alfred, Eastern Cape. This doctor recently birthed her firstborn and chose to have a midwife-led homebirth. Caroline shares her experiences in and around pregnancy and birth as well as how she had to shift her mind from being a doctor to becoming a mother.
